The Hands That Rock Gives Back

This past summer alone, the Hands That Rock was able to raise enough money to support nearly ten different charities that make a difference in communities all over the country and the world. We at the Hands That Rock are passionate about many things, and we are fortunate enough to be able to support wonderful organizations whose causes include music education, cancer research, and environmental preservation. Below you will find a list of the organizations we have supported recently, but to find a complete list of charities that we fundraise for, or to donate, check out our website.
